All Town Yard Sale to return April 17

Theo Tate

After a year hiatus, the All Town Yard Sale will be returning this spring.

The Montgomery City Area Chamber of Commerce announced during a meeting on March 4 that the event is scheduled for April 17 in Montgomery City. Proceeds of the event go to Montgomery County High School’s Project Prom, an all-night, chaperoned, drug and alcohol free event.

The All Town Yard Sale was called off twice last year due to the coronavirus pandemic. It was originally scheduled for April, but it was pushed to September. Then in early September, the Chamber of Commerce made the decision to cancel the garage sale.

“There were a lot of participants in the past who have always done it and they were disappointed that it was cancelled last year,” said Patsy Cox, one of the board members. “Yard sales are kind of signs that the weather is getting nice and people have been sheltered inside all winter long. It’s an opportunity to get out and whenever there’s a whole slew of yard sales in one town, it makes it very nice because you don’t have to travel very far to go to all of them. It’s a great opportunity to offer this to the city residents.”

Cox has contacted businesses in the area that will be willing to contribute to pay for the advertisement and the map of the yard sale. The businesses are Montgomery Hardware & Home Center, NECAC, My Office Plus, Mike’s Autocrafts, York Law Office, York Title, America’s Best Inn, American Bank, Matt Speight of Scott Agency, Bratchers Market, the Medicine Shoppe, Central Heating & Cooling, Montgomery Florist, Jonesburg Bank, Peoples Savings Bank, and St. Andrew’s at New Florence.

“A majority of businesses contributed every year towards this,” Cox said. “Everybody I called basically said, ‘Yes, we will do it again this year.’ ”

Cox said students from MCHS will be handing out maps of the yard sale at the intersection of Second Street and Highway 19. The map will include a list of all of the yard sales in town.

“With all of them being located in one town and the map being given, a lot of times when your GPS isn’t working on your phone, it’s kind of hard to find the place,” Cox said. “With the map, it makes it much easier for everybody trying to go to the yard sale.”

Anyone who wants to run a yard sale must contact the Montgomery City Hall and provide name and address. There is no cost.
